EAP Levels

Students must have an 80% average to successfully pass a level.

Level 3 (Intermediate)

This level focuses on helping students communicate confidently and fluently in an academic environment. Engaging and relevant topics capture students' interest and incorporate the vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, and critical thinking skills students need to be successful at the post-secondary level.

This integrated skills level is for advanced students who wish to improve their academic reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills. Students will also develop essential academic skills such as critical thinking, autonomous and active learning, and learning process management.

With successful completion of EAP Level 4, students meet the English proficiency requirement for admission into MITT Category A programs.

This Advanced Academic level is designed to give students the skills they need to write university-level academic papers and read academic texts. There will also be an emphasis on appropriate grammar structures and the use of academic vocabulary in writing. With successful completion of Level 5, the English proficiency requirement for admission into MITT Category B programs is met.

Students who do not place in our Intermediate level can register for entry-level English programming with our trusted local pathway partner, Heartland International English School.
